Tower in Muscat

Image by Jenny Walker Lonely Planet

The restored Portuguese watchtower on a promontory out to sea, halfway along Mutrah Corniche, affords a view of the ocean and the grand sweep of Mutrah's waterfront. The Corniche between the watchtower and the souq is a popular place to catch the evening breeze and is decorated with beautiful flowerbeds all year round and colourful fountains at night.
